WWII RESISTANCE MEMBER TO SPEAK AT VITERBO NOVEMBER 8

LA CROSSE, Wis. – World War II Resistance member Mireille Rostad will speak at Viterbo University Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Main Theater.

The event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required, but seating is limited. The presentation is part of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership 2005-06 lecture series, Perspectives on the Holocaust.

Rostad was 16 years old when the Nazis invaded her hometown of Brussels, Belgium in 1940. Using a fake ID and the underground network established by the Resistance, she walked to occupied France where she served in the Resistance as a medic and distributing clandestine newspapers.

After the war, Rostad worked in counterintelligence in General Dwight Eisenhower’s Frankfurt headquarters. She is a recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.

The event is sponsored by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership and is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
